SOURCE: soap residue on glasses & silverware

Try changing the type and brand of detergent as some are better than others. Could the water softener need service? If you wash/rinse any dishes in the sink, do they have the same problem? Good luck!

SOURCE: We have an Admiral Dishwasher that won't clean all

In addition to the detergent that you use add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of citric acid to a load. This will get the dishes clean and it removes scale deposits that can build up in the pump and screens causing less water to be pumped. Citric acid can be bought online, I get mine from thechemistrystore.com
